There are numerous issues with routers provided by ISPs. If you purchase static IP addresses, the installer will typically configure the router to use them for DHCP. Customers may also turn on IPv6 pass-through rather than use the more complex, and often buggy, IPv6 firewall rules for each device. Fixing your own ISP-provided router is hard as hell unless you can hack together another internet connection for looking up secret instructions and bug workarounds.
